Students at Sturgeon Bay School District could be tasting the fruit of their labor as soon as this fall after ground was broken on its greenhouse project earlier this week. The project was fully funded by private donations and will be used for classes spanning the spectrum of subjects. Teacher Natalie Townsend says the greenhouse led to the development of her new sustainable living class.
Food service director Jenny Spude believes the students’ pride in their work will have a ripple effect in the cafeteria.
The completion date for the new greenhouse located in front of Sturgeon Bay High School is expected to be in mid- to late September.
